Hello friends, here is another photo of my 2015 series
of the jumping - almost flying American Red Squirrel.

1/4000s f/5.6 ISO1000 85mm (35mm eq:127mm).


« The red squirrel is most active in the early morning
and the late afternoon. It is a solitary animal, except for
mothers and their young. The red squirrel makes its nests
in a variety of places including hollows in the ground,
in tree hollows, logs or crotches in trees. The red squirrel
is very vocal and chatters, growls and screeches. »

Hello Asbed,
Not a easy target.... Excellent contrast and sharp details. I like the contrast of this nice Red Squirrel, against the environment. It is a wonderful specie and difficult to shoot because it is moving very fast.....

Bonjour Asbed,
Ta spécialité le saut des écureuils. Parfaitement saisi ici et avec en plus un magnifique arrière-plan. Bravo encore.

Bonjour Asbed,
La suite n'est évidemment pas décevante mais remarquable par la coordination de la vitesse et de la profondeur de champ.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
